The masterplan Area and land ownership
The 2014 masterplan
The 2014 masterplan demonstrates the capacity of the site to deliver change to this part of the town centre. It demonstrates the site has the potential to deliver:
- Around 250 new homes, 40% of which should be affordable
- Bringing in an extra £1 million annual spend into the local economy.
Working and living
- Around 10,000 square metres of commercial space. This includes workspace or hotel development above the station, workspace and retail on the former ice rink site and a new covered space in-between the viaducts for retail and employment, alongside investment in the associated railway arches between Pope’s Road and Gresham Road and off Valentia Place.
- This commercial space has the potential to include new workspace, shops, a hotel, market storage and provide an additional 500 jobs.
- Major improvements to public spaces along Pope’s Road and Brixton Station Road and improvement to the street market in those areas.
- The potential for a refurbished train station, with a new entrance on to Pope’s Road and lift access
- The potential for a connection through from Brixton Village to Brixton Station Road

Engagement to date
A Local Reference Group, grown out of a series of individual and group meetings held with local people and organisations, acted as a sounding board for the development of the Brixton Central Masterplan.
Further discussions with residents, local businesses and students from Evelyn Grace Academy, provided feedback on two proposals and development principles in Summer 2014.
Following further detailed design and viability work, we expect to publish a refresh of the masterplan and a supporting delivery plan in mid-2018.
